What’s your favorite color?

I was once asked this for a job interview: What’s your favorite color and why?

I thought this was an interesting question, especially for an interview. Although, this has become a popular thing lately as the geeks and nerds are conquering the world. I didn’t really know how to answer this question. I felt that I had to write something deep and meaningful, painting a picture of a childhood discovery with pirate ships.

For as long as I could remember, Purple has been it for me. So, here’s how I replied:

I often refer to myself as a fanatic of purple, rather than it just being my favorite. I am obsessed! There isn’t exactly a cute evolutionary tale involved, but I can recall the exact moment I was sold on the primary mixture.

My five-year-old logic: Purple is the color of royalty.

My last name is Castle.

Castles are also places where royal people live.

I must be a princess!

So, what would you say?

Erika Damn Castle!

I've always been told that I'm an adventurous girl and I cannot deny any of it. I would love to see the world and experience all of the stories it has to tell me. I am a child of the arts, developing my senses in music, painting, sketching, crafting, et cetera. But writing... it was a talent I believe I was born with. I'm not saying I'm an amazing (grammatically correct) author, just that I'm a natural storyteller. I can remember from the time that I learned how to read and write, I was eager to create my own world. I would scribble out tons of poems and short stories, then forcibly share them with my family (or even with my classmates). One of those stories resulted in the creation of this blog. Black Tears. As a child with an already wild imagination, I would always have these equally crazy dreams. One of those dreams was so vivid, that I awoke in the middle of the night and jotted down everything I could remember. From that point, the dream evolved into a poem, then a short story, and then to a complete story. It is the fruit of my 20 year procrastinating labor, and has been published into a book (the first of its series). Tune in to stay updated on the growth of myself as an author and the series. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have loved creating it! XX , Erika

One thought on “What’s your favorite color?”

  1. Nice answer. I would have been caught off guard for sure. I don’t really have a favorite but I might have said turquoise because it’s a mineral and a color and when growing up my parents had a lot of turquoise stuff from the 50’s and 60’s.
